Tech magnate's $7.7 billion (revenue) Wipro, India's third-largest outsourcer, reported a 6% fall in net earnings to $304 million in a recent quarter amid sluggish sales. To boost growth, Wipro has been on a buying spree in the past year. Its most recent acquisition was HealthPlan Services, an insurance-technology firm based in Florida, for $460 million. But it called off the $130 million purchase of New Jersey-based Viteos Group, citing delays in completion of the deal. In August Premji completed 5 decades as Wipro's boss.
